This combo class of pilates and stretching is taught by our own Elbow Park resident and very accomplished Christy Hayne from Yoga Mandala.

This class focuses on using a variety of Pilates props to engage and strengthen all the muscles which contribute to your core strength, your deep abdominal and lower back muscles, and pelvic floor muscle.  Improve your posture and functional fitness; this class ends with an extended stretching component.  All levels welcome. 

Based upon the principles of Joseph Pilates Method, this class will strengthen your “ powerhouse” which in turn will leave you with a healthy spine, agile body and feeling longer and taller!  

Instructor: Christy Hayne at terrifffamily@shaw.ca

Christy is a lifelong lover of movement who has lived her passion to the fullest from her earliest days. Beginning in childhood as a tree-climbing, multi-sport athlete and gymnast, Christy discovered dance in her teens, eventually winning a place in Calgary’s own Decidedly Jazz Danceworks, where she spent a decade as a professional dancer. In a NYC modern dance master class, Christy was introduced to the practice of Pilates, which in the 1980’s was gaining traction with dancers as a system of conditioning that supported the intense physical demands of full-time dance training and performance. The controlled repetition of sequences designed to improve core stability through the strengthening of deep intrinsic musculature, the refining of larger back and lower body muscle groups, and improving connections between breath and movement, became a passion as well as a preferred personal practice. A mother of two, an avid runner, and a lover of outdoor pursuits, this practice became a new career when Christy received her Stott Pilates Certification in 2004 and began teaching in Calgary. Christy returns frequently to New York to study and after coming on board at Yoga Mandala in 2012, also completed a 200 Hour RYT training. An inspirational as well as experienced teacher, she often shares with her students a favourte quote from Joseph Pilates: “You are only as old as your spine feels”; skillfully guiding them towards their personal best, and that oh-so-rewarding “Aha” moment.
